In order for jacket potatoes to taste incredible, you need to add some foods to the pan during cooking.

Pour water into a saucepan and bring it to a boil. As soon as bubbles begin to appear on the surface of the liquid, throw in a few cloves of peeled garlic and dill stalks (it is the stems that are the most fragrant).

Only then put the washed potatoes in the pan. Don't forget to salt the dish and throw in the bay leaf five minutes before it's ready.

As soon as the vegetables are cooked, immediately remove them from the water to cool. Then the tubers will be cleaned very quickly and easily.

A side dish of jacket potatoes will be much more appetizing if you pour it with a special dressing of olive oil, chopped garlic and chopped dill before serving.
